Foreshadowing 20th-century corporations,
the Tequesta traded with mainland neighbors to the north and island brethren
to the south. Today their descendants are the 150-plus U.S. and multinational
companies whose Latin American headquarters are based in Greater Miami.
For fans of international business and random statistics, Greater Miami
has more than 40 foreign bank agencies, 11 Edge Act banks, 23 foreign trade
offices, 31 binational chambers of commerce, and 53 consulates.
Miami is different from any
other city in America -- or any city in Latin America for that matter,
even though it has a distinctly Latin flavor. Both logically and geologically,
Miami shouldn't even be here. Resting on a paved swamp between the Everglades
and the Atlantic Ocean, the city is subject to periodic flooding, hurricanes,
and the onslaught of swallow-size mosquitoes. Despite the downsides, however,
Miami is a vibrant city. The Tequesta Indians called this area home long
before Spain's gold-laden treasure ships sailed along the Gulf Stream a
few miles offshore.
Island Queen and Pink Biscayne
Lady are 150-passenger double-decker tour boats docked at Bayside Marketplace.
They go on daily 90-minute narrated tours of the Port of Miami and Millionaires'
Row, costing $17. Refreshments are available. For something a little more
private and luxe, RA Charters sails out of the Dinner Key Marina in Coconut
Grove. Full- and half-day charters include snorkeling and even sailing
lessons on the 40-foot ketch, with extended trips to the Florida Keys and
Bahamas. For a romantic night, have Captain Masoud pack some delicious
fare and sail sunset to moonlight while you enjoy Biscayne Bay's spectacular
skyline view of Miami. Prices range from $450 for a half day to $800 for
a full day, depending on the number of people aboard and refreshments provided.
The Bayside Marketplace is a
very popular open-air, festive shopping mall with over a hundred shops,
several restaurants and general entertainment. Its waterside front overlooking
Biscayne Bay is a good place to engage in boat tours and trips throughout
Miami Hot Spots:
Greater Miami boasts some
of the hottest nightspots in the world. In South Beach, club hoppers can
stroll streets that teem with activity all night long. They can also find
lots of party action and live music in the Design District area. Nearby,
Downtown Miami is giving South Beach a run for its money with new emerging
hot spots, while Coconut Grove is a favorite late-night stop for fun-seekers.
As the moon makes its trek
across the sky, Miami dance clubs and lounges open their doors to warm
ocean breezes and the beautiful people who fill their dance floors and
VIP rooms to capacity every night. Taking the cue, nighttime revelers put
on their dancing shoes and begin to dance the night away — oftentimes to
a Latin beat — at Miami dance clubs and dance parties

Did you know that there are
close to 750,000 slot machines in the USA alone? Spending time in a casino
can be a great source of entertainment. It's common to find fantastic dining
or world-class rooms all within a stone throw away from the casino floor
as well. Thus, spending a night or two at a casino can be a lot of fun.
Here are some of our favorite casinos located around the globe.

Balazs may have opened South Beach's first official spa hotel, the Standard
on Belle Isle, but Uma's beau wasn't brave enough to go all the way: The
coed steam room there is prudishly swimsuit-required. The 500-square-foot
version at the Hotel Victor's spa, however, is strictly a bikini-free zone—and
all the better for it. The shy but spa-curious can book a treatment such
as the clay and olive oil cleansing Hammam V ($250), which is performed
in a private Turkish-style hammam with a heated marble bed just off the
So get this, according to
the Miami Herald, Miami Beach will be the first American city to host Sleepless
Nights, a night where restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs will be open
all night from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and fashion shows, art exhibits and performances
will be happening. It is scheduled to happen Saturday, November 3, and
will be divided into four zones: North Beach, Collins Park, Lincoln Road
and Ocean Drive. It is modeled after a Parisian event that was later copied
by cities like Rome, Madrid and Toronto. What I fail to see is what makes
this any different from a regular Saturday night in Miami Beach? Aren't
most things opened until 5 a.m. anyway? I mean maybe not restaurants, but
I fail to see what's so great about this. What they are going to get is
a bunch of drunk Kendallites running around all night long.

Sultry, seductive Miami entertains
many identities: snowbird refuge, retiree haven, celebrity playground,
immigrant stop-off and tourist mecca. All undeniably accurate, they're
telling descriptors of everything this dazzling city embraces. They're
also indicative of the melting-pot culture that has come to define South
Florida, an area originally dismissed by developers. The region later found
purpose as a resort destination for the wealthy and as farm land for Florida's
first settlers (or "Crackers"). These initial roles ultimately led to today's
Miami, a capital of commerce, recreation and self-assertive flamboyance.
But what else could you ask
of a sub-tropical wonderland washed by brilliant southern light and kissed
by enveloping seas? As recently as the early 20th century, America's Riviera
was largely a backwater. Its potential was finally brought to fruition
by the advent and arrival of the railroad, promise of a year-round growing
season, and the emerging leisure class's disposable income. These days,
easy access is a given, and agriculture flourishes, but Miami's natural
beauty – and its world-class restaurants and nightlife – most strongly
render it a fashionable escape for fun and freedom.
The greater Miami area also
includes the upscale community Coral Gables with its impressive Mediterranean
architecture, and trendy Coconut Grove as well as the distinctive neighborhoods
of Little Havana and Little Haiti.
Just outside Miami to the
southwest is Metrozoo, one of Florida's finest zoos. This zoo provides
its 'residents' with a natural and largely cage-free environment.
